Catching up on a few developments in New York high school sports from over the weekend:
2-K Kobe: Argyle senior Kobe Lufkin cracked the 2,000 points barrier for his career Friday during a 92-67 victory over Hartford in Section 2 boys basketball.
Lufkin hit for 53 points, giving him 142 in three games this season and 2,010 overall. Joel Wincowski's Section 2 record is 2,617 during his career with Lake George.
LuHi loses: Holy Cross carried a 1-4 record into Saturday's game against Long Island Lutheran, ranked third in the state in Class AA but rode Hassan Diarra's 25 points to a 63-60 upset.
LuHi was reportedly without the superb Donatas Kupsas but did get 18 points and nine assists from Brandon Jacobs, not to mention 17 points from swingman Chris Coalmon and 11 out of the low post from Essam Mostafa.
Lincoln keeps rolling: Abraham Lincoln came out strong to start the second half and went on to a 57-38 win over Green Tech in the City Legendz Invitational at the Gauchos Gym in the Bronx on Saturday.
Lincoln is top-ranked in Class AA and Green Tech is ranked 18th.
Donald Cannon-Flores and Junior Sutherland scored 14 points apiece as Lincoln improved to 7-0.
Green Tech led 11-5 after the first quarter. Lincoln had a 19-6 advantage in the second quarter and went on a 19-2 run in the third quarter to take command.
Coach cleared: Anthony Cialdella's suspension as the McKee/Staten Island Tech football coach has been lifted, The Advance reported.
"I was told by my union rep and by my athletic director that the case is closed," Cialdella said. "I was told that the complaint was unsubstantiated."
Cialdella had been sidelined since Oct. 5, when Staten Island Tech Principal Mark Erlenwein informed him of a Department of Education investigation into an alleged late-September incident between his team, which was practicing at the time, and a visiting boys' soccer squad on campus for a game.
"This is more of a relief for my family and myself," Cialdella said. "Overall, it's bittersweet. I'm happy that it's over, but I'm still mad that I lost the whole season I had prepared for. It was a wasted year ... all over nothing but a fictional story. But it's time to get on with next year."
MSIT was 3-1 at the time of the suspension and finished 9-2 after a loss to Lehman in the PSAL semifinals.
Arrested: Former Bishop Maginn basketball prodigy Taran Buie is facing drug charges after his arrest over the weekend. Buie, 25, was a passenger in a car that was stopped Saturday in Rensselaer County, The Daily Gazette reported. According to state police, a trooper detected an odor of marijuana, and a search of the vehicle uncovered "several plastic baggies containing less than 25 grams of marijuana, approximately 1.9 grams of cocaine, and other items indicating possible sale of narcotics."
Terrance T. Inman, 24, of Schenectady and Buie were arrested. State police said Buie is charged with two counts of fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and second-degree criminal use of drug paraphernalia.
Buie was third-team all-state as a sophomore and a second-team pick in 2009 as a junior. He played his senior year at State College (Pa.) High. He played at Penn State, Hofstra and the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma in a college career marred by brushes with the law, the paper reported.
College decision: Poly Prep star Isaiah Wilson committed to the University of Georgia on Friday, and the mammoth offensive lineman did it with style.
